Cultural therapy is a way of helping people cope with cultural diversity and societal inequity through the mediation of the school as a central institution for cultural transmission and maintenance.

This book illustrates how cultural therapy can be applied in educational settings to promote better understanding among teachers and students. Each chapter presents a situation in which the author has been intimately involved, offering a variety of approaches to, and interpretations of, cultural therapy.
